Well, the good news is that newspapers are dying. We had little or no input in them. At least online we can stay on top of the news, search multiple sources quickly...and maybe even cause a few brush fires.
Note, though, that the reason they are dying is the archaic method of information delivery. Paper is dying.
Now, this shakeup has allowed us to make inroads in journalism. That is a good thing. People can now choose between the beclowned 'mainstream' press websites, or better-informed and more salient conservative ones.
